I agree keep both. I still think Orakpo is a better overall player so if I had to choose between the two I would choose Orakpo. Jackson is better at making plays in coverage, Orakpo from what I have seen is better at everything else.

I know, kinda my point. When Shanny came in, Jackson was not a starter, but a developmental player in whom, apparently, Shanny saw something.

Look, it's paying off 3 years later.

If the Shanaplan was to suck so bad that would end up with RG3 then it was a great plan.Yes were on a nice winning streak but im not getting carried away.Im not quite ready to forget the Mcnabb fiasco and the way the whole thing was handled.The whole Haynesworth thing,switching to the 3-4 made no sense and pissed off your 100 million dollar player,those are 2 major f ckups im not ready to forget just because weve won a few games in a row.
The other little things that plagued Mike since he's been here like clock management and on field descisions like when to throw flag for instant replay,have improved slightly during win streak but not by much.
Theres been a few things ive had problems with but we won the games so they were rendered mute.
Then theres the leading the league in penalties,is that on the coach?
Im happy with the progress weve made and I think Mike and Kyle have improved over the winning streak but Im not ready to click on yes or no just yet
I forgot to mention I do thing The Shan has done some positive things.I think overall theyve drafted pretty well.I liked the signing of Hightower,Garcon,Wilson,and i might be forgetting someone.So I do think theyve done some good things.Like I said,wish there was a 3rd option to poll

You can also consider that the defense has "buckled down" partly due to Jackson heady play. He is a smart player.
He is a good role player, I do not think he can be a long term starter though. A single interception is better than a sack. But a consistent pass rusher through an entire is better than a linebacker who has three interceptions and makes flashy plays. I still think we should keep them both but to think that Jackson will replace Orakpo's impact vs. the run and vs. the pass is far fetched at best. There is a reason the pass defense is so inept, and a huge reason is lack of any pass rush. Redskins have improved slightly but we just improved to terrible to bad. It is not like the Redskins all of a sudden are a top tier defense with Jackson's presence. Redskins are still a well below average defense and Orakpo and Carriker's presence on the d-line has proven to be essential to the success of the defense.

I think at times Orakpo is a liability.
In the 3-4 your outside LBs are your main pass rushers, so they better be good or your D will suffer, as we've seen.

I think Rak is more solid overall than some give him credit for. He's come a long way.

Rob Jackson had one interception against cleveland and their rookie QB and now people are here saying he could replace Orakpo or Kerrigan. Lets see some consistency before we give anyone a starter title

Perhaps there is a bit of truth in what you say. I think Jackson can probably cover better than Orakpo. He can also get to the QB just as ferociously. People tend to forget that both of these men are natural DEs so they both are impressive linebackers. While Orakpo is the slightly better pass rusher of the two, he still needs to work on his coverage skills come next season.

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

Rob Jackson has really developed as a pass rusher and in coverage. Love me some 50.

But to say he is the same or better than Rak is pure foolishness. He lacks Rak's power and burst, for one.

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

Regarding the pass rush -- I can't speak to how often it is called but it seems as though 80% of holds against LBs don't get called. Maybe I am misunderstanding the rule but in the replays it seems as though an OT has to have a linebacker in the choker before a hold is called.

to be fair, he had an interception against Cincinnati too.

I agree though, and Rak actually looked pretty good in coverage prior to his injury this season.

I do believe however, that Jackson has all the tools to be a starter.

They just don't call holding like they used to.

It's an offense driven league.

Seems like the pass rushers have just gotten too good. They never call the sideways arm bar neck block that is really obviously a hold...but if they did call it then eventually the QB would start getting sacked like 15 times a game. Orakpo gets held like that like every play...same with Kerrigan.

It was just pathetic on the MNF against the Giants when Chucky pretty much showed a replay of Kerrigan being put on a choke hold by the Giants' lineman.

Is four sacks in the last five games consistent enough? All wins. He has three interceptions and 2 forced fumbles with two games to play. So he has caused five turnovers for our defense.
I am not saying get rid of Orakpo, keep them both, but Jackson should play his fair share and not waste away on the bench.
I highly disagree with some that say Orakpo is better against the run. No sir. Orakpo sometimes on run plays guesses wrong and goes for the sack. Completely over running the play and failing to keep gap responsibility. Jackson is better at setting the edge against the run. Jackson is better in space and making football decisions on the fly. That skill can not be measured by stats.
Orakpo has not blossomed into the dominate LB he is supposed to be at this point in his career. Yes he has sacks, but he has weakness' in his game at point in his career where he should be past them. Kerrigan was already surpassed Orakpo at OLB.

That is just awful -- I understand that the offense is what drives the excitement but I really hate how the league has neutered great defensive play in some respects. That's why my favorite play is when a quarterback (not RG3 of course) gets blown up on a sack.
